Graham Tyack, a local resident, gave the Haddenham Village Society a fascinating account of his Impressions of Japan — Nihon no Insho — following his many visits as a result of the marriage of his son to a Japanese girl, which provided insights to Japanese family life.
He set this against a comprehensive background of Japan which he had thoroughly researched covering history and geography, people, culture and language, food and drink, religion and everyday life, business and travel, which enthralled his audience.
His many colourful slides and exhibits enhanced a most memorable evening.
